Roll-formed new style punch teardrop uprights: Also referred to as their “U” punch design Interlake began making this style of connection to set themselves apart from all of the other Teardrop style pallet rack manufacturers. The beam that fits this has a slightly skinnier stud that works with both Teardrop and New Style making it one of the most universal styles of pallet rack shelf beams. You must be careful when matching beams with these frames. You will need a “new style” beam or a “shaved rivet” beam see pictures below for examples. Traditional teardrop beams will not fit into this style of punch.
